Global Hipocrisy

Well, here's a weird thing.

When the Americans don't like the way that another country's leader runs his country, they invade it, depose him, execute him and impose martial law.

When the Russians shoot down a civilian airliner, the Americans tut and say they'll give them a stern talking to.

Yes, we cam blame the Russians for arming the rebels, or for invading Ukraine in the first place.

Or, we can ask why other world leaders stand by and do nothing.

What, oh what, is the world coming to?

Who, oh Why, oh Why???

There are some odd things for sale on eBay. Here's one that I just tripped over...

Why on Earth would anyone buy just the rusty old hinges and handle???

Oh - to make their own pasting table. I get it. Well, they'll need some hardboard for it. Let's see...

So that's £6 for the old hinges, £1.90 for postage and £6.67 for a piece of hardboard. Plus you'll need some wood for the frame and legs. Let's say 4 pieces at £1.72 each. That's a grand total of... £21.45


Oh, wait, while I was on Wickes' website buying the parts to make a pasting table, I saw this...

I don't get it.

Wickes. It's got our name on it. And it's stuck on with glue that will never come off, so your DIY projects will always have a torn, tatty label with our name on.

Duncan Bannatyne's Best Moments on Dragon's Den

To celebrate Duncan Bannatyne's decision to leave Dragon's Den, we've compiled a montage of his 'best bits'...

"I wouldn't buy it, and if I wouldn't buy it because I'm a tight-arsed, more-money-than-sense, ice-cream-van-owning thief of people's hopes and dreams then no-one else in the world would buy it either. I'm oot."

"I don't like it, and if I don't like it then no-one in the world likes it. I'm oot."

"I don't understand it, and if I don't understand it, it can't be because I'm thick, therefore it's a rubbish idea and I'm oot"

"I've sat and listened to these idiots talking a load of nonsense for the last few minutes, so let me tell you where I am. I'm oot."

"There is no reason anyone would want a computer in their home. I'm oot."

"This 'telephone' has too many shortcomings to be seriously considered as a means of communication. The device is inherently of no value to us. I'm oot."

"While theoretically and technically television may be feasible, commercially and financially it is an impossibility. I'm oot."

"Who the hell wants to hear actors talk? I'm oot. I'm oot."

"Drill for oil? You mean drill into the ground to try and find oil? You're crazy. I'm oot."

"Airplanes are interesting toys but of no military value. I'm oot."
"Louis Pasteur's theory of germs is ridiculous fiction. I'm oot."
